Looking for suggestions for a new wash cabinet.
I used to have a top load Hotsy but have since ditched it because it was imho poor design and made a mess.
Seeking opinions on what is the best bang for the buck these days. Don’t need a big one just one that would fit an engine block or a tranny case.
Looking at the bendpak 500 but 1hp seems a little small as even my old Hotsy had a 1.5.
Any opinions?

Not sure if you mean wash tank or whole parts cabinet. The race shop i worked for i think had a torin or Eastwood wash tank. Not sure of your budget but there are a couple of how to tutorials online on how to make your own.

Do you want a new one or used? I would check your local CL. Sometimes you get old mechanics that are shutting down shop and you might be able to get something better.

I don't know anything on the subject.

I guess we have different definitions of big..
A size that would hold an engine block or transmission I would call big grin2

Whats the next size? fit a whole car? Coffee2

Having a good heater & using good detergent (Zep) is more important than the pressure pump motor HP. You got to keep in mind you're running the heater/s & the pump motor.

You're speaking of the Ranger RS-500DS? I think you'll like that one! Very similar to mine but in stainless.

Ooo yeah good looking unit.
I like the 2 hp . That’s pretty much the machine I’m looking for as long as it don’t leak out the door like my old hotsy
Thanks for posting!

It has drip/spray deflectors on the sides of the door, & the door itself has a full bottom to it with a inboard drain. Mine doesn't leak.
